This tutorial explains the fundamentals of drawing different types of both male and female anime and manga hair. It also provides detailed example drawings from the front side and back views. It can be very helpful to first draw the head before you start drawing the hair especially if you are a beginner. The shape of the top of the head in anime and manga is often fairly close to the shape of a real head but can also vary depending on style. From the side view the head can be drawn in a slight oval shape usually less so than a real head. From the front view the top of the head is close to a half circle.

Anime hair is drawn using thick, distinct sections instead of individual strands. This can result in spiky, choppy-looking hair, or hair that has a sleek, straight appearance. Before you get started, decide whether you want to draw short or long anime hair since the process is a little different depending on the length. Tip: If you want the hair to be wavy, draw wavy lines down the sides of the head and to the ends of the hair. You can also draw thick spiky sections curving toward or away from the face for a spiky, messy hairstyle.
Since manga characters typically have simple, geometric hair, you can create excellent manga hair simply by layering shapes on top of one another and erasing the lines underneath the shapes on top. Create a simple oval to serve as a guideline for the head, add a larger circle behind it, then add spikes or rectangles to create the sides and fronts of the hair. Tip: This hairstyle works for both men or women. In addition, you can easily extend the shapes in the back to make the hair bigger or smaller. From Vegeta to Inyuasha, there are plenty of manga characters with long hair that are men.
